History

SustainRange is a part of the General Paints group based in Celbridge, Co. Kildare, Ireland.

General Paints was established in 1953 by Ronan O’Connor, who set up his company in a section of a Famine Workhouse, dating from 1841, in Celbridge, Co. Kildare. The company originally manufactured oil based gloss, oxides, machinery enamels, undercoats and road-line paints. In the late 1950′s the company began manufacturing decorative paint for houses and in the 1960′s General Paints introduced tinting systems to Ireland.

With the advent of emulsion technology from America in the 1960’s they became the first European paint company to manufacture a water-based paint using a pure acrylic resin, and is today arguably the leading specialist in acrylic paint technology in the British and Irish Isles.

Since the year 2000 General Paints has modernised; further developing manufacturing/storage facilities and expanded its Retail, Stockist and Industrial bases. Their sales, production, laboratory, distribution and administrative staff are committed to providing our customers with premium quality paint and coatings at competitive prices, backed by a level of technical support and service only available from an independent company.

General Paints is committed to driving the business forward through product innovation, investment in new technologies and developing team skills. However we remain true to our core values of quality and competitiveness. The business is well positioned for strong growth and we look forward to working with our progressive customers for many years to come.
